Compassion for the Family/Vida Reavivida Inc. takes domestic violence against women very seriously. It is imperative that women and their children be offered safe refuge. We are committed to provide this service that is so badly needed in Puerto Vallarta. In order to provide this service, we are constructing a shelter in a discrete location in the greater Puerto Vallarta area. Non disclosure of the location is imperative in order to ensure that we provide a safe refuge. Compassion for the Family/Vida Reavivida Inc. does not actively seek out women that are victims of domestic violence nor does it remove women from the abusive environment or involve itself in domestic disturbances. Compassion for the Famil/Vida Reavivida Inc. does accept women and their children exclusively through Desarrollo integral de la Familia (social services).
The building site for the shelter was purchased in 2010 and is owned by Vida Reavivida A.C., our Mexican not for profit organization. The shelter is approximately 30% completed and when finished will house up to 34 individuals.
When construction is completed, the shelter ongoing support in the way of donations to help cover the costs of food, hygienic items, cleaning products, clothing, educational materials, maintenance, taxes, utilities and insurance.
Staffing of the shelter will consist of a male/female couple that will function as live in volunteer facilities managers, professional counselor(s) that will volunteer their services and additional volunteers to assist with basic education, English second language education and job specific education.
